Barnwell has selected twelve uncapped players, including Police prodigy Danny Pell and Renegades forward Traer Stephens.

Corey Boyce, Tom Healey, Darren Richardson, Adam Richards, Thomas Greenslade and Conor McGowan have also been recalled, after missing out on the 46-0 victory against Princeton.

Bermuda will host Jamaica for the first time since 1975 at a busy National Stadium in the opening game on Saturday 9th March, before taking on Chesepeake University the following Monday.

Jamie Barnwell commented, “As always there were a number of tight decisions, especially with a number of players being unavailable in recent weeks, meaning that some very good players have missed out in this particular window.

The upcoming Rugby Americas North Championships offers an exciting opportunity for the squad but will also be very challenging. We are certainly looking forward to getting back to a packed National Stadium with the fantastic support that we get there.”

The March 9th game will be the main feature in a full day of rugby. Youth games will begin at 12pm followed by the women’s contact league. Spectators are encouraged to come out and support the team of their choosing. Entry $5, with concessions provided by Gosling’s and Jamaican Grill.
